WHO DOES THE EVENT SUPPORT?
Workforce Development: The number one challenge of area businesses is finding qualified workforce. Mid-Maine Chamber of Commerce is committed to improving opportunities and bringing more residents, employees, and businesses to the area. It utilizes funds raised to attract applicants to area job opportunities.
Food Insecurities: With children’s health and wellness as a top priority at the Alfond Youth and Community Center, it’s no surprise that its Festival goal is to provide much needed food to area families. Funds raised will supply meals, snacks, and take-home, weekend food backpacks to over 500 families participating in its after-school programs in Canaan, China, Norridgewock, Oakland, and Waterville.
